Clapping Songs

Tina Keane

1979
6 minutes
Available formats: DVD / Digibeta tape / SD Digital file

A video which uses slides to isolate and emphasise the actions two girls made while singing traditional clapping songs. The songs are extremely funny, but with a double edge – particularly ‘Susy’, which illustrates, with a high degree of irony, a woman’s life from the cradle to the grave.
